I''m Ready For My Close-Up/Electric Sheep:The Art Theatre Guild of Japan (19 August 2011)
Electric Sheep editor Virginie Selavy talks to Julian Ross about the summerâs seasons of experimental and independent Japanese cinema of the 1960s and 70s. In the 60s, the Art Theatre Guild of Japan (ATG) in Tokyo became the centre of a vibrant independent filmmaking scene, encouraging bold experiments and innovative collaborations with other artists. The discussion will focus on the ATG, its related space Theatre Scorpio, and the films the ATG helped produce or distribute, including works by Nagisa Oshima and Koji Wakamatsu.
